Imagine if the above post was the only thing I posted; this message isn't even here. I think that's what QQ means.

I completely agree, I see them as spam. Some people might just be doing that for a lot of posts in a little amount of time.

This brings up a question though... do I report those kinds of posts for spam?
----------------------------------------
You see what I did there? Some people quote a person's post and post it as their own post, but you should add a little something extra at least. I see this happening A LOT in the polls. Now, sometimes it happens in the Roleplay section, but that's not because they're posting the post as their own, it's because they're bumping it up for their roleplay partners to see it. Still, I think you should at least go...

Quote:
roleplay text roleplay text roleplay text roleplay text
roleplay text roleplay text roleplay text roleplay text
((you missed this, username))

or

Quote:
answer for a poll answer for a poll answer for a poll answer for a poll
answer for a poll answer for a poll answer for a poll answer for a poll
I agree/I would do the same/they've said it perfectly/etc...

-----------------------------------------

Now, I don't think that what you're saying, Quack Quack, is really wrong, because someone might want to point out "Look at this answer, it's the right one and the others might confuse you." Of course, they probably wouldn't word it like that but you know what I mean. If that happened to be I'd actually feel honored It's always nice to add a little extra thought that may not have been in the post you quoted, though.

Default Re: Don't quote a post and hit reply.

My main beef with it is on the Somebody help threads. How are you helping by only quoting someone else? Agreeing with someone's answer or opinion is fine, who doesn't appreciate a second opinion. But a million of the same answer gets redundant.
Copy and paste replies would not be counted towards a hopeful GT's posts, which is basically what a quoted reply is. And it's never ok to do that as a welcome to a new member. Try when and where you can to use your own words when posting, no matter where it is.

^ What I was about to say

I think that if you posted a quote in certain places, for instance poll threads, then you agree with that person/their wording of an answer. But, in help threads, it doesn't really 'help'.

I agree completely with that last statement-this is something that really gets on my nerves, and few things do...in a sense it's like copying and pasting for a school paper. This here is definitely not as extreme as plagiarism like that, but it's rude to just quote someone and have that be your "response".

I really only do it on polls, and other people do it as well. Quote Replies to me seem fine to me, because I roleplay and maybe your continuing a past roleplay with someone and say

I agree with this and I do have to admit that I am one of those people that sometimes quotes other people's posts. Usually I try to say something after it though.

Yes, yes, YES. You put it pretty much perfectly when you said that. I mean, you aren't stealing someone's words because in the quote it says who originally said that, but for school and for becoming a GT and such, you shouldn't and won't get credit for that post. With all due respect to people who do this, of course .

Agreed. It's like your taking someone else's post and adding it to your post count.

Default Re: Don't quote a post and hit reply.

It annoys me with super long posts, but when it's something on a poll, with a simple reply, say:

ORIGINAL POST:
Do you like pop tarts?

RANDOM PERSON:
Yeah, pop tarts are delicious.

and then someone quotes the "Yeah, pop tarts are delicious. " post, I'm fine with it. They would have said the exact same thing anyways.
